The sounds of an explosion coming from the back of an Obetz house warned people inside to run.
A fire started inside the garage behind a house on Graves Drive around 11 p.m. Thursday
The fire chief said the fire spread from the garage to the back of the house. The flames also melted the siding of a neighbor's garage.
The people inside the house at the time escaped from the flames after they heard the explosion. Neighbors made it out of their house too once they smelled smoke.
The garage where the fire started was a total loss. The house and the neighbor's garage had significant damage.
Firefighters said the cause of the fire appears to be accidental, but an official cause has not yet been determined.
